Insisting that she is proud of her curvy figure, the reality TV star bares all in a non-photoshopped picture for a magazine in her effort to tell young women to embrace their curves.
Convincing young women to love their curves, Kim Kardashian
has agreed to pose totally naked and without being retouched by photoshop. In the May's issue of , which will be available on newsstands April 27, the 29-year-old reality TV star was seen lying down on the floor with her left arm covering her breasts.
Kim signed up for the photoshoot because she wanted women to "embrace your curves and who you are." The "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star said, "I feel proud if young girls look up to me and say, 'I'm curvy and I'm proud of it now'."
Although she now feels proud of her body, Kim admitted she didn't always love her shape. "I was wearing a C cup by the time I was 11. I would go to bed and pray, 'Please, Lord, don't let my boobs grow any bigger'," she shared. "I hated what was happening."
Kim, who recently split from football star Reggie Bush
, further spoke about her amazement over her much-talked butt. "I don't get why everyone is always going on about my butt," she said. "I'm Armenian. It's normal. My butt is probably not as big as you might think, because I have small legs and a small waist, which makes it appear bigger."
Kim Kardashian is not the only one who posed naked and unretouched for Harper's Bazaar in a bid to spread message that natural bodies are beautiful. Other curvy women joining the photo shoot were photographer Amanda de Cadenet and actress/model Joy Bryant.
